Please let us know what you require and we will be sure they are ready. While we offer plenty of sleeping space, we still recommend that group size is limited to no more than 8 due to the overall size of the property.

The house was absolutely amazing! It was perfect for me and my family! We loved coming back to a warm place to stay when it was so cold and windy outside. Thank you so much for everything!
Our adult children enjoyed their Christmas stay at Jane's house. The house was clean, uncluttered and comfortable, and the lock box was an added convenience. Her Welcome binder gave them lots of information. The location is very nice; as she said, the house backs up to a lovely park.
Note: the host uses scented air fresheners in the house. If you are sensitive to fragrances, consider asking her to unplug them in advance.
Jane's home was beautiful and exactly as described. Our family greatly enjoyed our stay so close to the Nation's Capital!
Your home was easy to find and close to the metro just as listed. Although we had a smaller crew of 3 we had a nice time relaxing before the Marathon and after. So the house was bigger than. Needed. My husband cooked us dinner on your grill and was pleased about that. Thanks for hosting us. We will recommend you and keep you in mind for future trips to your area.
This is a very comfortable home with plenty of space for our family. The well equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare all of our evening meals and the deck was a great place to enjoy the scenery!
This place worked out perfectly for our group. Everything was as described - the lock box was a bit of a challenge to close (and I'm a realtor so I know lock boxes!) - but everything went well. Never met Jane in person (communicated through texts) but she has a great welcome book with all necessary details. I would recommend her place to other travelers and would use it again if in the area. Thank you!
We loved Jane's home! It was comfortable, clean and spacious enough for 6 adults. Jane was helpful and always available to us. The yard was beautiful as well...lovely view out of the kitchen window.
I live in Northern Virginia with my family. I have 2 small boys that I adore. I'm also a devoted animal lover and spend most of my free time at our beach house in Rehoboth, DE with my family.
